Free Fall and Inertia

Lecture no. 2 from the course: Black Holes, Tides, and Curved Spacetime: Understanding Gravity

Free Fall and Inertia

Taught by Professor Benjamin Schumacher | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Review three great discoveries by the “grandfather” of gravity research, Galileo Galilei.
